I joined the Whidbey Island sketchers yesterday for their outing to Cultis Bay Nursery. Judi was kind to offer to pick me up from the ferry so I could just walk-on, which saved a lot of time and and some money. It was not having to wait in the line for the drive-on that was so good….the line was about a mile long as I drove past it!
I did a quick 5 minute ink sketch of the Mukilteo Lighthouse. When the Seattle Urban Sketchers were here last month I didn’t sketch it along with nearly everyone else. This is from the ferry before it pulled out of the dock. I didn’t have time to color it until I got home.
Once at the nursery, I did two sketches. I focused on some details. I thought this tricycle cart was amusing.
It got really hot in the sun. After Thursday’s storm, I didn’t expect the heat to return so soon. For the next sketch I sought a place in the shade. These fish out of water appealed to me.
